Look at the yellow sweet corn inside a freshly baked muffin. This Blue and Yellow Corn Muffin is one of the best sellers at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill Restaurant. You may want to have this in your party so your friends could experience its great taste.
When Carina turned 1, we just had to celebrate by throwing a small Sound of Music themed party because, who doesn’t love the Sound of Music?
Remember the scene where Fraulein Maria wondered what to do with the fact that the Von Trapp children didn’t have play clothes…until she saw the green damask drapes in her bedroom and recalled that they were going to get new drapes for her bedroom windows. What happened then to the old drapes that were still in good condition? They were magically and overnight turned by Maria into 7 play clothes for the kids!
And what do you think happened to the off cuts of the drapes? Well, I turned them into decors for the Sound of Music themed party, of course!
For the food, I wanted it to have a very Sound of Music feel, so I listed the foods that were mentioned in the film, plus made up some.
Do you remember the “Tea! A drink with jam and bread” line in Do-Re-Mi?
Of course, My Favourite Things told us of
“Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels,
Doorbells and sleigh bells,
And schnitzel with noodles ,”
Then there were the other foods we made up.
And we just had to have berries because of that scene…
“Friedrich told you, Father. We were berry picking.”
“I forgot! You were berry picking.”
“Yes, we love berry picking.”
“We picked thousands.”

A few days to go and the new SpongeBob Squarepants movie will be out in the cinemas! Hurray!
Speaking of SpongeBob (which is one of my nephews’ most favorite shows), I’d like to share one of my nephews’ birthday celebration last year. Because they were so into SpongeBob at that time, I suggested a SpongeBob themed celebration. Boy, we were so excited to try to create a Krabby Patty!
The white net (it’s really a net for protecting fruit trees from birds) added that under-the-sea/beach effect to the presentation.
In the weeks prior to the birthday, I did some research as to the names of foods that were served at one time or another in Krusty Krabb – the ever famous restaurant where SpongeBob works. Then I had to get my imagination to work and come up as to what can play as what kind of food. Here’s what I had come up with so far….
And finally….Krabby Patties!!! (with fresh greens from the backyard garden)
…and some more!
I had stuck a piece of paper on the door at the last minute. Here’s that piece of paper, as captured by my phone’s camera:
Well, yup, the little kiddos loved the theme and the celebration. Wish I could recreate this in celebration of the new SpongeBob movie. 🙂
